Vic Secret T-90 Hop Pellets - 2oz

$5.50

Description

Australian Vic Secret T90 Hop Pellets, 2 oz sealed package

Vic Secret is a cross pollination between high alpha hops from the HPA Breeding Program and Wye College.  Released in 2013, Vic Secret provides a lovely blend reminscent of European and North American varieties.

Usage

While Vic can be used as a bittering hop, it really shines in late additions and dry hop additions because of the strong, distinct tropical fruit and citrus characteristics.  Add heavily in whirlpool and dry hop additions for best results.

Aroma and Flavor

Sometimes called poor man's galaxy (ironically), expect big pineapple, passionfruit and tropical fruit as well as distinct citrus aromas.  Flavor is bright and clean with a distinct, earthy backbone to provide counterpoint and accentuate the brighter fruit characteristics.
